Community Police Academy

The Pasadena Police Department has announced the dates of the first Community Police Academy for 2018. Weekly classes will begin on Thursday February 22nd and run every Thursday for 8 weeks. Classes are generally held from 5:30-9 p.m. at the Pasadena Police Department.

The Community Police Academy (CPA) is an informative classroom series that gives an inside look at Pasadena Police operations while discussing the principles of community policing. The purpose of the class is to promote a greater awareness and better understanding of local law enforcement’s continuously changing role in the community.

The course covers a wide variety of subject areas including police communications, criminal law and procedures (laws of arrest), street crime enforcement/investigations, field identification, weaponless defense training, youth programs and more. It concludes with a graduation dinner, where students receive a certificate of completion.
